I am wanting to add some Polish Infantry to my allied forces in the west. Am I right they wore the standard British uniform, with a red lettered white Polish shoulder title, or where there other differences?

Thanks for any help,

Pretty much standard British uniform with a white on red shoulder title but the Polish eagle was worn on the beret and sometimes on the helmet

Thanks Frederick, I'll have to be sure and add the eagle to the front of the helmet, which will help differentiate them from my British Infantry.

They also wore their own rank insignia, NCOs are stripes in red and silver on shoulders rather than traditional nco stripes.
